Have you ever had the urge to invest in real estate but then the reality of running a real estate investment company, and the time it takes to do so has taken the wind out of your sails? There are a lot of temptations to invest in real estate, especially if you are watching HGTV and other “real estate” shows. All these amazing wealth building shows have one thing in common, they glorify the active side of real estate investing, without highlighting the massive challenges that come along the way.
Some of those challenges include: Managing brokers who are sending you deals, underwriting constantly, thousands of dollars spent on due diligence, deals falling out of escrow, speaking with lenders, filling out loan applications, getting insurance quotes, then finally closing a deal, now who manages it for you? Who is going to handle the tenant relationships, who is going to fix the leaking toilets, who is going to pay for all the expenses? What if the property doesn’t cashflow? What if the flip doesn’t go as planned and you lose thousands?
Are you really going to be able to handle this whole process all while continuing your career? The answer for most people is probably no. There is just not enough time in the day between family commitments, work commitments, friend & community commitments, etc. However, all these fears and excuses are outweighed by the fact that investing in real estate is one of the best ways, if not the best way, to build wealth.
If you want to invest in real estate but don't have time for it, do not worry, companies like JSJ Sustainable Investments, have a solution for busy professionals who want to get into the game, without having to run the entire operation from A-Z. Our investment strategies can help you generate thousands of dollars on the side or produce enough regular passive income to replace your current income, all without having to fix a leaky toilet, or deal with a tenant who can never seem to pay on time.
Like all other investments, real estate has its share of risks. There is no way to completely avoid the risks. However, one important advantage of investing in real estate is that it provides a hedge against inflation. Inflation erodes the value of many investments, but real estate investments keep pace with inflation. As the prices of basic amenities go up, so do rents, which in turn increases our property values.
We Can Help You To Invest In Real Estate If You Don't Have Time
If you are a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, CEO of a company, an architect, airline pilot, or anyone who really does not have enough time to operate a real estate deal, this is where a company like ours comes into play. You as a passive investor, or limited partner (LP), can invest alongside us, with little to no investment experience, all without taking on any additional work, other than a bank wire and signing a few legal docs. Once that is complete, you receive monthly, or quarterly distributions on your cashflow. You also receive a K1 tax statement at the end of the year as an OWNER in the investment, rather than a 1099 like you would with your stock account or any sort of private money lending. All of this without having to guarantee a loan or worry about managing the investment. You are teaming up with a team of seasoned professionals who know how to navigate these more complicated deals and can essentially eliminate 90% of the risks of doing deals on your own. Now, we are not tax professionals, or financial advisors, we are not lawyers, but we are investors with over a decade of experience who invest alongside of our limited partners in deals that we truly believe in!
At JSJ we focus on 6 aspects to protect, and grow your wealth, all with little effort required from you:
1. Cash Flow - Our Investments provide cash flow to investors while we wait for the equity to appreciate over time. Tenants pay monthly rent which covers all expenses and provides profit to the owners.
2. Appreciation - Real estate appreciates in value, and that value can be recaptured, tax free, throughout the life of the investment.
3.Stability - Real estate is less volatile and has historically outperformed the S&P 500.
4. Amortization - Tenants pay down the debt which increases your equity, creating long-term wealth.
5. Leverage - You can leverage real estate, allowing for the purchase of $20M with only $5M.
6. Tax Benefits - Commercial real estate is the most favorable tax efficient vehicle on the planet. Depreciation is a free tax write-off that allows you to keep more profits in your pocket.
With our done for you approach, busy professionals and entrepreneurs alike can invest in institutional quality investments, and receive all the benefits of owning the properties, without having to handle any of the day-to-day operations. We allow investors to invest alongside us on the passive side of the deal, meaning, you as the investor will receive the cashflow, the appreciation, the depreciation, the amortization, and all the tax benefits as an owner of the deal, rather than as a lender or dividend investor in a REIT.
